The MetroNY Chapter of AWIS and NYU Women in Science are cosponsoring an event focusing on specific tools to help us negotiate as women in science. This is a free event open to all! Space is limited, so we ask that you reserve your spot with an RSVP.
Negotiating skills are especially important for women in science and are essential in areas such as negotiating parameters of a postdoc position and negotiating salary and start-up packages (including space) for junior faculty. They are also critical for entrepreneurial faculty when licensing their intellectual property or spinning off a start-up company. Understanding how and when to employ these skills at various points throughout one’s career can significantly affect the level of professional and financial success women scientists can achieve.
In this presentation, Dr. Gillian Small, Vice Chancellor of Research, CUNY will discuss these topics in detail and provide advice and references.
There will also be the opportunity to network with fellow scientists in NYC! Light refreshments will be served.
Dr. Gillian Small joined CUNY in 2001 and served as University Dean for Research from[masked] before being appointed the Vice Chancellor of Research. She has been responsible for establishing many new research institutes at CUNY, as well as the first postdoctoral program for postdoctoral fellows across the University and the Technology Commercialization office. In addition, she has conducted numerous panels and talks on negotiation and has many tips and wisdom to impart on young female scientists at the start of their careers. Dr. Small serves on the governing boards of the Association for Women in Science, The Science Coalition, the World Science Festival, and the New York Structural Biology Center, among others.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE!
